Food Innovation and Product Design (FIPDes)

FIPDes is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master programme in Food Innovation and Product Design scheduled over two academic years. The overall objective of FIPDes is to provide top-level and up-to-date education that qualifies the graduates to cope with the huge challenges in the sector of food innovation along with product design and packaging. It is a joint programme coordinated by a consortium of four universities:

Studies are conducted in two or three universities depending on student interests. Students from all over the world can apply for the FIPDes scholarships. In Lund the students gain in-depth knowledge about food packaging design and logistics. More detailed information about how to apply, scholarships, partners and members, courses, and practical information are found on FIPDes official webpage.
